It was an exciting weekend at our house. My youngest performed in her very first theater production… a musical put on by some students from her middle school.
The show was called “Dorothy In Wonderland”… kind of a mashup of “The Wizard Of Oz” and “Alice in Wonderland”.
They’ve been working hard on it for weeks; memorizing lines, blocking scenes, and creating the perfect costumes for their characters.
All that time wasn’t spent in the classroom but I know that they learned skills that are easily transferable to the real world.
- To work together.
- The ability to take direction.
- To think on your feet.
- To improvise.
- To be creative.
- To be comfortable in front of a crowd.
- To accept constructive criticism.
- To be able to give constructive criticism.
- To work hard.
- The importance of being part of a team.
I’m extremely proud of my daughter and her friends. They were fantastic!
This week’s Bible verse is for them… all those hard working, creative middle schoolers. It’s 1 Timothy 4:12 (GNT).
“Do not let anyone look down on you because you are young, but be an example for the believers in your speech, your conduct, your love, faith, and purity.”
